Return of the Dinosaurs

Yesterday we made a final visit to Dinosaurs Return at Edinburgh Zoo. It ends on 1 November so if you haven’t been yet, get there quick.

Ellie got up close and personal with a stegosaurus. Its name translates as ‘roof tiles’.

Ben was a little less sure. This was as close as he was prepared to get to an Edmontonia.

Jana and Ellie thought the Citipati was adorable. It’s one of the dinosaurs most closely related to modern-day birds.

Next up was a Quetzalcoatlus, actually a type of pterosaur not a dinosaur.

By now, we were inspired to dig for dinosaur bones ourselves.

Venturing out into the Jurassic Period again, we were greeted by that most fearsome of dinosaurs, the T-Rex!

Last up was the Triceratops family. This dinosaur had one of the largest skulls ever found on a land animal.

We had a great time.
